Video Smoothing

Video Cloud players in Flash mode by default use video smoothing to improve the perceived quality of video playback. There can be a trade-off, however, between the added quality you might get by using video smoothing and the additional CPU burden that video smoothing imposes on the client. With higher video bitrates, the benefits of video smoothing are less noticeable. 

Video smoothing does not apply to players in HTML5 mode.

Turning off video smoothing

Some viewers with less powerful computers may perceive a choppier video quality due to frame dropping, which may outweigh the benefits of video smoothing. If you want to turn off video smoothing in a player, you can do so by including the optional videoSmoothing="false" configuration parameter in your player publishing code.

How to add the videoSmoothing parameter to your publishing code

The configuration parameter name is the same, regardless of which type of publishing code you use, but the syntax varies for JavaScript, ActionScript, and HTML embed code. Read about player publishing codes and player configuration parameters

JavaScript publishing code configuration parameters

If you are using JavaScript, you include configuration parameters between the <object> tags in the player publishing code. The JavaScript player configuration parameters take this form:

<param name="videoSmoothing" value="false" />

ActionScript publishing code configuration parameters

If you are using ActionScript, you include configuration parameters in the init function in the player publishing code. The ActionScript player configuration parameters take this form:

config["videoSmoothing"] = "false";

Embed publishing code configuration parameters

If you are using HTML embed code, you include configuration parameters in the flashVars params in the player publishing code. Note that you need to add this for each flashVars parameter. The HTML embed code player configuration parameters take this form:

<param name="flashVars" value="playerID=13578640001&playerKey=AQ~~,AA...&domain=embed&videoSmoothing=false" />
